STREAM: The Walkmen - We Can't Be Beat
"We Can't Be Beat" is the back-to-the-land first song on The Walkmen's upcoming album Heaven. The LP is one of my favorites of the year thus far and this one forms the perfect introduction with its yearning vocals, acoustic guitars and wordless blues. When the beat (or stomp, really) finally kicks-in and all those harmonies explode, it's one of those beautiful emotive things that only this band can do. Hear more May 29.
